    What do you mean by "good sight picture"? What power are you having trouble at? Could be an exit pupil problem. If that's the case 32x will just make it worse.

    I have tried them and didn't care for the image quality at higher magnification. seemed like past about 22x things really went down hill

    I have had several with magnification above 22X, mine all worked just fine. I still have and use 2 different 8-32X NXS (NP-R1).

    The only complaint I have with the higher magnification versions is the limited elevation adjustment. That will be solved if/when I move to the ATACR.

    I went from a NXS 22X to the 32X and back to the 22X. The 32X was nice but in most instances was not as usable due to mirage. That coupled with the reduction in MOA of elevation makes the 32X kinda a poor choice for me. More magnification but less dial up are not good together. If you are having trouble getting into the eye box on a 22X NXS the 32X will only be worse. I find the NXS one of the easiest scopes available for getting a full eye box view. I would be looing into why you are having trouble.

    I am not completely sure what you mean by a "good Picture" but at 500 yards you are not even scratching the surface of the 22X NXS. We have shot these scopes over 2500 yards with great results. At 500 yards we could center up on the eye of a rabbit.

    Here is an example, the center of this orange target is about that size and I can center on it. But never said I could hit it...
